Esports

Esports is the world of competitive, organized video gaming. But, it isn’t just about playing games. Its popularity has opened doors to new career paths in game design and development and many other unexpected careers. Esports competitors discuss strategy, hold practices to hone their skills and compete against other teams. It may not be a traditional physical sport, but it shares many of the conventional aspects of a sport: competition, skill, leadership opportunities, teamwork, participation requirements and entertainment.

 

Onramp 

Community, Creativity, and Coding  The Onramp program reaches students in need and develops Idaho educators. Through Community, Creativity, and Coding we are building the state's workforce. Onramp integrates coding into the K-12 grade levels, using the Everyone Can Code curriculum. Teachers and students identify and propose technology-based solutions to community challenges. Onramp is a unique partnership between Boise State, College of Western Idaho, Idaho Digital Learning Academy and Apple. The partnership works with innovative school districts and teachers in and around the Treasure Valley.

 

Support Educators' professional development — $200 covers the Onramp Summer Academy, a week-long immersive experience that prepares participants to integrate coding into their classroom. $600 covers an entire year of professional development credit.

 

GIMM

The Boise State's GIMM Program and the Old Coot & Maggie Foundation have created a portfolio of high-tech solutions to community-based problems. This partnership has received input from community members who have identified problems that can be solved with a high-tech solution.

 

Currently, the GIMM Student Development Team, GIMM Faculty, and field experts are working on the following projects:

1) A handwriting therapy for Autism spectrum disorders which entails creating a small augmented reality game that uses the pen and pressure-sensitive iPad to help children learn basic writing skills.

2) A curriculum for deaf children is being developed with the National Literacy Foundation for the deaf to convert their entire curriculum into a series of mobile apps/games.

3) A project is under development to create virtual reality experiences of Idaho's natural beauty with 360-degree video to help cancer and dialysis patients.

4) Virtual reality and 360 videos for sensory training for children with special needs is being developed as a request from special education teachers.  For example, this project will be filming VR experiences with a 360 camera to capture what a trip to the grocery store would be like.

 

Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge

The Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge (IEC), hosted by the Venture College and the College of Innovation & Design, is the largest educational collaborative competition among universities in Idaho, with students from seven Idaho universities participating. Students from across the state compete for funding to launch or advance their startups.

 

Boise State IEC winners from past years include Lumineye, who provides wall-penetrating radar for first responders and soldiers, as well as Style Her Empowered, a company helping young women in Togo by improving access to education and job skills.

 

Your support of Idaho students and their ideas will give them the opportunity to advance their ideas and make an impact in their community and across the world.
